Thank You Cricket Australia

I am quite amused by this whole merry go round created by the Australians.

Ricky Ponting left the Kolkata Knight Riders to captain his country.

KKR roped in Brad Hodge from Lancashire for 5 weeks to replace Ponting.

Lancashire called up Mohammad Yousuf for 5 weeks to fill in for Hodge.

Micheal Clarke got Bingled and decided not to tour the Windies.

Cricket Australia announced Hodge as his replacement.

Lancashire want to thank CA for taking Hodge away for longer than the 5 weeks as Yousuf is a much better batsman and will probably score more than Hodge would have.

KKR also want to thank CA who called in both Ponting ad Hodge for national duty as neither scored a run during the IPL.

PCB also want to thank CA as this merry go round has provided opportunities for their cricketers - Yousuf for Hodge at Lancashire and Salman Butt for Hodge at KKR.

Brad Hodge will also be thanking CA for the call up.

Hodge first replaced the Australian captain and now he replaces the Australian Vice Captain. For a small man, those are some big shoes to fill.

Finally Well Pitched would like to thank CA for giving us something to write about.

Make your pitch on this post...
